The Republic of Burundi has had a very interesting recent past having been colonised by the Germans and Belgians and then a United Nations Trust Territory after World War II. In recent years the country has been suffered greatly, most noticeably in an economic sense, and is now considered to be one of the poorest nations on the continent of Africa.
90% of agricultural output is subsistence farming whilst the nation is almost exclusively dependent on coffee for its export revenues. Thankfully Burundi does have deposits of platinum, copper, nickel, cobalt, and uranium should it wish to exploit those resources to increase the standard of living of its inhabitants.
The landlocked nature of the country, being surrounded by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo, certainly doesn't help with exports, given that many countries on the shores of the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic are able to make use of sea shipping.
Before you can send parcels, or anything else, into Burundi you will have to check for import restrictions.
We also advise ensuring your box is correctly packaged and that you check your item is not listed as prohibited on the Parcel Monkey list.

Heavy box collected with fragile item from Lowestoft and delivered in Scotland (near Aberdeen) a few days later. I had written This side up on the box, but this was not always obeyed, as there was slight damage to the item. However the price was very good for delivery and the customer had a spare part, so was not unhappy.
DPD did what they said they would and the tracking process confirmed that.
Everything worked as should. Great service!
Fast and easy to use
